Tom Fox was killed on March 9, 2006. Jim, Norman, and Harmeet were freed two weeks after 118 days of captivity. The kidnapping of these four men was like a rock thrown into a pond. This DreamSeeker Books/Cascadia edition of a book copublished with Christian Peacemaker Teams describes the ripples on the water, the impact and results of that rock, in stories characterized by hope, courage, friendship, and forgiveness. 118 Days bears witness to vital peacemaking being done around the world in these times.
